The Old Ball Coach really adds nothing of substance when it comes to the coming season for the Razorbacks. We all know it’s a tough schedule, that the Hogs have a 4-20 record since the start 2018 and that the roster is “depleted of talent.” Eye roll...
In an interview on Friday with Rivals’ Zach Abolverdi, former Gamecocks and Gators head coach Steve Spurrier had this to say about Arkansas;

“I heard @finebaum talking about Vanderbilt. He didn’t think they could win one, he said.
To tell you the truth, I don’t know how they’re going to win one. Because they don’t have Arkansas on the schedule.” pic.twitter.com/sIWvNaMcoN
Of course, things have been bad in Fayetteville recently. One of the losses in the 19 SEC game losing streak was to Vanderbilt of all teams. A perennial doormat in the SEC East, the Commodores got the best of the Hogs in Fayetteville in 2018 by a score of 45-31.
Spurrier has always seemed to have a problem with anything that has to do with Arkansas over the years. During his time as the head coach at South Carolina, Spurrier was burned on multiple occasions by Razorback great, Darren McFadden. It is widely known that after McFadden rushed for 321 yards against the Gamecocks on Arkansas’ senior night in 2007, Spurrier later on left Arkansas’ beloved running back off his ballot. Salty bro? Through the latter stages of the Houston Nutt years through Bobby Petrino, the Hogs were 5-3 against him at South Carolina. Those wins included blowouts in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
